Dane Cook Cracks Jokes

About 'Batman' Massacre

7/27/2012 8:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dane Cook
is using the Colorado shooting tragedy as material for his standup act.

Last night, Cook took the stage at the Laugh Factory on Sunset Blvd. and began to talk about "Dark Knight Rises."

In footage, obtained by, Cook can be heard saying ...

"So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie ... And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap ... yeah, spoiler alert.”

Cook continued ... “I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like ‘ugh f*cking shoot me.’”

A bunch of people in the crowd laughed ... some people groaned.

For the record, the shooting occurred exactly one week ago ... 12 people were killed and 58 were injured with many people still hospitalized.

It's about time Mel Brooks publicly apologizes for making fun of the Roman Inquisition. Lots of innocent people died, you know, what if they were your ancestors, Mel Brooks?

Get over it. He's a comedian, trying out new material (and possibly telling jokes that are offensive to some) is what he does for a living. And besides, you're not supposed to record performances, for this exact reason. One badly timed joke can get you into a lot of undeserved trouble, because a few holier-than-thou douches decide "you just can't say something like that". Guess what? He just did. And no matter how much you disapprove of it, the joke won't ever go away.

Even more, without the 'public outrage' most of the people wouldn't even have heard of the joke and all you moral knights in whiny armour wouldn't be able to stroke your own politically correct ego's. So you ought to thank Cook for making you feel better about yourselves, cry it out and have a friggin' cookie.
